Edited by David R. Soller

May 19-22, 1999
Madison, Wisconsin

Convened by the
Association of American State Geologists
and the
United States Geological Survey

Hosted by the
Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey

The Digital Mapping Techniques '99 workshop was attended by 91 technical experts from 42 agencies, universities, and private companies, including representatives from 30 state geological surveys. The workshop was initiated by the AASG/USGS Data Capture Working Group, convened by the Association of American State Geologists (AASG) and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), and hosted by the Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey. The meeting's general goal was to help move the state surveys and the USGS toward development of more cost-effective, flexible, and useful systems for digital mapping and GIS analysis. The principal topics were:

  • methods for creating and publishing map products (including web-based release),
  • continued development of the National Geologic Map Database, and
  • progress toward building a standard geologic map data model.
The proceedings volume contains 45 papers.
